I took Ritalin in college, not because I needed it, but because it helped me study and pull all nighters. All I did was ask a doctor for it and he perscribed it no problem. The stuff puts you in a surreal, zombie like state where you almost feel out of body. Very similar to the high achieved snorting cocaine (yes, I have tried it). This was me, fully grown... I can’t imagine a child taking it, much less every single day.
People like you who abuse ritalin (speed) get high from it
People (yes kids) who need ritalin to manage true ADHD slow down to “normal” when they take it.
So shame on you.
My doctor described the feeling medicated ADHD kids get as becoming addicted - to being normal. Able to sit and think. Able to focus on learning. Able to be accepted and part of a group discussion or sports team.
It sure has changed our son’s life and our entire families’ lives for the better
